Cape Appeal has raced over a different trip in each of her three starts and tries 6f for the first time on her handicap debut. Multitask finally showed some improvement last time having tumbled down the weights but DIAMOND VINE went very close at Chepstow on his latest start and it could be his turn today. Red Ramesses looks in the handicapper's grip now but Beauty Pageant has a shout off her current mark if rediscovering her best.
